Jessner Peel San Diego
Chemical peels are slowly gaining popularity basically because of the benefits it brings to the skin. But unknown to many, this beauty treatment has been used during the ancient times.
Normally, chemicals such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA), alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), or phenol are applied to smoothen and lighten the skin’s texture. It’s an ideal treatment for anyone suffering from acne, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation.
One of the most raved beauty treatments under the chemical peel is the Jessner Peel. It has been used as a beauty remedy for many years. Like the regular peel, it uses an acidic liquid to encourage the growth of a new, younger skin by removing its top layer. Aside from the face, it can also resolve back acne, crepey leg skin, pigmented back, and more. This treatment is known for:
- Evening out skin tone
- Reducing age spots and dark marks
- Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reducing the appearance of scars
- Treating skin discoloration due to melasma, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation
Despite the negative feedback – such as the lasting discoloration on darker skin – the recent advancement of Jessner’s Peel has made it safer and more effective in achieving flawless and even pigmentation even on darker skin. It also became a popular choice in San Diego when it comes to treating acne and acne scars.
HOW OUR JESSNER PEEL WORKS?
One of the services that we are proud to offer is the Jessner Peel. Our certified estheticians are packed with the right knowledge, skills, and experiences to help you achieve a youthful, more flawless skin. It works by removing the top layers, promoting a smoother, even skin tone.
When it comes to chemical peeling, there are at least three levels representing the depth of the peel. Our Jessner Peel falls on Level III (medium to high depth peel), meaning, it removes the epidermis and dermis. The epidermis is the outer layer of the skin while the dermis is the skin underlying the epidermis.
To achieve a smoother, more flawless skin, the treatment will make use of one or a combination of these chemicals namely salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol. The treatment can also be added to other solutions to boost their effectiveness on pigmentation, dark spots, and scars.
Cleaning the face is the first and important step before doing the treatment. This will remove oil, dirt, makeup, and other products on your skin. For the application, we may use a cotton-tip, brush, or gauze to apply the peel on your face. You’ll have to wait for at least three to five minutes before we remove the peel completely. After this, our esthetician will apply a cool compress and soothing lotion to relieve the skin.
After the procedure, you might experience redness and swelling, discomfort or burning, and peeling. In some cases, especially when you have darker skin, you may also experience rare complication such as lightening or darkening of the skin, infection, or scarring. Therefore, to avoid adverse effects, be sure to only consider reputable facial spas and consult a doctor first.
CAN YOU DO YOUR OWN JESSNER PEEL AT HOME?
If you’re wondering whether you can do Jessner Peel at home or not, the answer is yes. However, you need to get the right tools and strategies ready first. After all, you’re dealing with potent chemicals that can either make your skin condition better or worse.
The advantage of applying Jessner Peel at home is that it is less expensive compared to the ones offered in facial salons. Also, it only takes a few recovery time, thus you can flaunt your new, younger skin sooner. The downside, however, is that it is less effective. Unlike the ones offered in spas, Jessner Peel at home does not leave a significant difference in terms of minimizing the appearance of dark marks and deeper scars. When not done properly, the chemical can leave your skin irritated and may only worsen your present condition.
Therefore, we advise that you take this treatment with the help of a professional. Our certified estheticians, for instance, can help you address your skin concerns safely and correctly. We also guarantee long-lasting results, thus you’re sure that you’re getting your money’s worth.
In some cases, chemical peels don’t work well with darker skin, therefore, it’s best to have it handled by an expert. At Waxing and Skincare by Celeste, we ensure to help improve your skin while avoiding permanent uneven pigmentation and other adverse effects. To schedule an appointment, please feel free to give us a call or you can message us directly to our website.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN GETTING JESSNER PEEL
Although peeling is different from extraction, it would help to take Ibuprofen prior to the treatment. Jessner Peel may bring a slight discomfort or tingling and taking a painkiller can alleviate the pain during the procedure. Once the treatment is done, your skin may appear snowy or white, which may subside in a couple of hours or more. After 48 to 72 hours, your skin will become red and brown in color as it progresses – this is normal and you should have nothing to worry about. Along with this, you may experience mild swelling, stinging, crusting and finally, peeling. Normally, it becomes tight, dry, and ugly but the results afterward will surely worth the wait.
Before Getting A Peel, Here Are The Things You Need To Consider:
- Consult A Skin Professional First
Although chemical peels – such as Jessner Peel – can be applied to anyone, it’s still best to consult a skin professional first to help you find the right treatment according to your skin type and condition. Estheticians will also help you find the right solution or option whether you think peeling is a major issue or not.
In line with this, your San Diego esthetician may ask you to follow a certain skin care plan prior to the treatment which you need to follow to avoid any side effects, which may include using retinol.
- Exfoliate Your Face
To get the best results, you may want to exfoliate your skin first to remove dead skin cells and dirt. Otherwise, you can let our trusty estheticians do the trick.
After Getting A Peel, Here Are The Things You Need To Consider
- Post-Peel Care
After getting the peel, do not get water or apply anything on the face for 48 hours. Also, avoid putting on a makeup until the peeling is completed. If you’re using any exfoliating products prior to the treatment, you should discontinue using it for at least three weeks.
- Going Back For Another Treatment
Normally, it’s best to have another Jessner Peel treatment after 6 weeks (depending on the skin expert’s advice). You should know that one treatment is not enough to get the desired result, therefore, you need to get a series of treatments to obtain optimal results.
- Use Sunscreen
Using a sunscreen is vital to protect your skin from the sun but most people ignore this part. However, after having Jessner Peel or other chemical peels, it’s imperative to wear sunscreen every day, regardless if it’s sunny outside or not.
- Leave The Peeling Skin Alone
It’s tempting to pick off any peeling skin; however, this should be avoided at all cost. What you can do is visit your esthetician to take care of the loose skin or use a small scissor to carefully remove it. If you want to minimize the peeling, you may use a moisturizer frequently.
- Use Ice Packs
Jessner Peel may leave you with a feeling of burning or tingling; to address this, you may apply ice pack on your skin or use a fan to soothe it. The skin professional may also advise you to take over-the-counter (OTC) antibiotics or pain-relievers.

Once I started going here so made me feel at ease and I go every 4-5 weeks now (that’s huge for me!). Her location is super cute and in a convenient location. She is quick and gets the job done in less than 30 minutes. Highly recommend going there for any facials or waxing needs.“
“My first time going in for a Brazilian! I was very nervous and worried about how much it was going to hurt! The staff was extremely helpful and Celeste made the process go as smoothly as possible. Very knowledgeable and kept my mind off the waxing 🙂 Of course it hurt, but was tolerable. I will definitely be going in again to see Celeste. I definitely recommend checking them out.“
